All India Consumer Price Index (AICPIN) for the month of October, 2011 is 198 (Based on 2001=100). Ministry of Labour & employment published the AICPIN for the month of October, 2011. This is one point more than the AICPIN for the month of September, 2011 which was 197. The hike is only 1 point and it is only a nominal hike when compare to August and September. On September 2011 there was a steep hike of 3 points from the AICPIN of August, 2011.

The increase of AICPIN due to the difference in the price of necessary items such as wheat, edible oil, rise, vegetable, firewood, kerosene, clothing and similar items. When considering Consumer price index numbers of various centers the maximum hike of 8 points recorded in Darjeeling centre and the maximum decrease of 3 points recorded in Mysore centre.

The indices of the six major centers are as follows: in the order of October, September, August and July 2011.

The Index number of Bangalore is same as the AICPIN and Chennai is the least consumer price index number when compare with the abovementioned major centers.
